'Raising the stakes'

First go at 'raising' in about 4 years. It's a really tough technique to master and makes your arm ache like hell when you begin. It's again, made from aluminium sheet, (one piece 0.9mm thick) and is gradually stretched by hitting it with a special raising hammer upon a raising 'stake'. Not brilliant, it shows I need to practice ALOT more; a good distraction though.
